Can't launch the game for java script
In my experience using Windows 10, opening the index.html in Chrome requires the Web server extension. Type chrome://extensions/ in the Chrome web browser then see if the Web Server for Chrome extension is install. Best way is to copy this url "https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/web-server-for-chrome/ofhbbkphhbklhfoeikjpcbhemlocgigb?hl=en" and hit the launch button. Using Firefox is easy just open the index.html

Hi Matthew, did the game work before you made any changes? Perhaps re-download the exercise files and review that everything is working to identify if it is your code or the Chrome web server. You can also try using Firefox as it requires no additional web server setup, to run the game. Simply open your index.html file in Firefox. Hope this helps: good luck!!

I have been unable to load the workspaces even before I have made changes. I believe I need to download the extension for chrome. Which I am trying to do and having some issues. Has anyone else donwloaded this extension? If so can they provide a basic explanation of how it works.
